Any of you looking for last minute costume ideas for All Saints’ Day? I know I am! How about making a Mother Teresa costume from a pillow case, a single bed sheet, and a roll of blue painter’s tape? Read on my friends, read on!
All you need is some white fabric and some blue painter’s tape, scissors, a safety pin, and either some bobby pins or a headband. You’ll also need one adorable child for inserting into the costume.
I have found that a veil falls more evenly around your head if it’s the shape of a half circle rather than a rectangle. Mother Teresa’s order (Missionaries of Charity) have one wide blue stripe and then 2 more narrow blue stripes on the edge of their white garments. So I ran one strip of blue painter’s tape and then cut another one length wise for the 2 more narrow strips. I hot glued the veil onto a headband for baby Violet to keep it on her head because she has no hair for pinning it into.
As always, supervise your children at all times and always take necessary precautions. In other words, don’t let your children choke on painter’s tape and then try to sue me. I promise you’ll find I don’t have much to sue me for anyway 😉
Hope this last minute costume idea helps you guys out! I still have 2 more to come up with before tomorrow. Suggestions???
